Research at
Manchester School of Art

Research is an integral part of the School of Art and our thriving community of researchers consistently demonstrate how creative research can be both exciting and engage with the major cultural and societal issues of the day.

Staff within the School are practicing professionals within their fields regularly exhibiting in major galleries worldwide, engaging with communities to enrich their possibilities, having influence over national policy or exploring new ways of expression through digital technologies.

The School has just been rated sixth in the UK for our research base, with two thirds of our research internationally excellent.

We also offer opportunities for postgraduate research degrees in art and design and the history and theory of art and design. Our long-standing research programme is highly versatile and can be purely theoretical or a practice led interrogation of creative processes and their outcomes.

All this experience and knowledge makes an inspiring environment to engage with, whether that be through study or collaboration.
